This book is such an encouraging read. There is so much pressure to do the right thing that it can be very overwhelming at times. Teressa makes it very clear that the most important thing to do is what works best for you and your family. I’m inspired and highly recommend this book to everyone, not just homeschooling families. -Amazon Review
Does one size really fit all? As lovely as that might sound, people come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. It is therefore virtually impossible to design a clothing item that can truly fit all people. In reality, the ‘one size fits all’ ideal is actually designed to fit sizes within a specific range.
Much like clothing items, traditional education centers around a ‘one size fits all’ methodology. As a result, a single-core teaching model is used for all students, regardless of their individual learning style. And this applies to teaching styles as well as to student evaluations. So, as a parent, what do you do when your child does not fit into that one core teaching model?
In Contrast Brings Clarity, Teressa answers that very question. Her courageous response completely changed the course of her life — and that of her son. While she struggled to build a suitable educational experience for him, Teressa overcame countless obstacles and, in due course, answered the homeschooling call. Eventually, side by side, mother and son embarked on the adventure of a lifetime.
Along her incredible journey, Teressa learned numerous strategies that helped her son succeed academically — and she would like to share those strategies with you.
This book renewed my goals, my inspirations, and love for motherhood and homeschooling. The stories in the book reminded me of the beautiful things in life and the wholesome things to fight for and to love. Bad days, weeks, or months happen to all of us, but we shouldn’t let that rule us. I was reminded that we should view the curriculum as a tool and not allow it to dominate us or take away our joy in the journey of learning. This book was quite simply the right book for me at just the right time. I would highly recommend it.-Amazon Review
